about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Did they beat 3S? Going plus should gain some mps
Good Director Story
Wait. RHO accepted the 1 bid?
Wipeout at T7
How could A ever be right?
Mixed BAM - ATB
I'm with David here. 1D X is not forcing for East. Showing 4 H does not suggest playing at the 2 level
How'd we get so high? ATB (Matchpoints)
Brad. At my table, North passed the double rather than bidding xxxx of spades. I think 2H is the weakest call while bidding beyond 2S is a hand that is accepting a game try. Over pass, south backed the hand down to 2H given the poorly placed KD
A play problem
I play small to the T on the gift of the dummy entry
Surely the auction is weong.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQJ72 J9 T874 8
Good problem. 3S seems right, but it feels like it might shut the door on 6D investigation. 4C looks best for 6D probe, but 4S might be the right contract. The other bids don't feel descriptive enough
weak two . define good suit or bad suit
We open quite light
weak two . define good suit or bad suit
For us a good hand has two controls outside the trump suit and a good suit 2 of top 3 of top 5 (other than QJT)
